I am sorry for your loss. I believe this should change, just as they created the Combat Action Badge for non-infantry soldiers. Soldiers that die in training during wartime should have the same honors.

It is heinous that this Gold Star Mother is being denied Gold Star License plates. Her son willing signed up and began his service to our country. He did that while we are at war. It takes a special kind of hero that is willing to sacrifice his safety and future for us.

I am a Gold Star Mother and yes, my son was killed in active duty in Iraq. What saddens me reading all of these is that I was born & raised in Ohio and used to be proud of that. After seeing the way she's been treated over these I will have to re-think how proud I am to be from Ohio. Yes, my son was KIA but her son signed the same oath my son signed and he was running laps to prepare for active duty so what's the diffence? He died for OUR country. Did you think he was training for the Olympics?? Common sense ~ whatever happened to that? Lisa deserves a Gold Star Mother license plate just like the rest of us who have lost our children in this so called "war" whether it be overseas or right here in the "Good Ole' USA"!!!! Give her what she is due. Wasn't it bad enough she had to bury her son just like we did? Something is TERRIBLY wrong with this picture!!!!!

A state should not be able to change the defination of the requirements to be recognized as a Gold Star Mother. The national charter says it's for any soldier that dies while our country is at war.

(rest of my comment) He lost his life training to be activated into a combat zone; is this not the same cause? Our State Government of Ohio returns the favor by spitting in their honor? That’s disgusting and the state should be ashamed of a bill so poorly worded and the Government should fit the bill so that all who lose their lives for The Government is properly honored as deserved.

The bill should be modified. If a man/woman takes an oath to serve the United States military and they make the ultimate sacrifice, as well as does the family who lost the individual, for the military, the United States, and all of its citizens the least we can do honor them. It’s one thing to word it so that everyone may not obtain a gold star – the premise of the wording is understandable in the sense that it would be unfitting for every single military personnel to receive such an award for death out of military (in the military but dies outside of the compounds or for a cause in which was not of the country or the oath) but in the case of Joshua Rolfe and I am sure other families who are facing the same trial – this is wrong. Joshua died in basic training, while running, while “training for combat”. He died in the military, for the military, and for the Government. What makes the difference that he was not in a combat zone? He lost his life training to be activated into a combat zone;
